How to install umbraco in root folder of the IIS server in localhost?


I have try to install Umbraco in root path (C:\inetpub\wwwroot) of the IIS. I have just download the umbraco and zip into the root folder. And add the website from IIS Manager. I have selected the dot net framework version as 4.0 and Managed Pipeline mode as Classic from Application Pool.

While I have browse the application , it seems an error.

HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found

The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler.

Module StaticFileModule
Notification ExecuteRequestHandler
Handler StaticFile
Error Code 0x80070032
Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\umbraco\default.aspx
Logon Method Anonymous
Logon User Anonymous

I don't know if this will help, but it's my understanding Umbraco needs to be run in Integrated mode.

What version did you install?
